UPDATE: Gurreilla have confirmed to us as well as PSU that there will be no co-op in Killzone 2, at launch or in a patch. More here.
Original Story: 7 weeks.
Thats how long we have until K-Day arrives when Killzone 2 finally launches on February 27th in the UK. With an epic story, a multiplayer which will rival that of Call of Duty 4 and graphics which are very close to Crysis like stuff, you cant help but be excited for Killzone 2.
But it seems that there are a few people miffed about one thing: no co-op in the game.
It probably wont bother most people that are buying the game that it doesnt have co-op but it will piss off a few peeps.
However, for both camps, good news, there will be co-op down the line according to Gurreilla Games.
According to a ‘GAFer who played the game at CES last week, a rep from GG said that a patch for online co-op will be made available later down the line after the launch of the game. He also mentioned the fact that the version he was playing a the finished Gold Master version of the game.
It was the same level that we’ve seen for quite a while. Game runs very smooth and the lighting is amazing (as we all know). The rep made a comment about not having split screen co-op due to the amount of data that’s streamed off the disc. He mentioned that they’re currently working on online co-op to be patched in at a later time. The controls were a little slow for me but I’m sure it’s just a quick sensitivity adjustment in the menu. Game looks great, especially on the new line of Bravias that they were setup on.
Hmm… wonder what the co-op experience will be like for Killzone 2, 4 man co-op?
